To learn about the upcoming election, we read Voting and Elections. It's a little long, so we just discussed text features and read bits and pieces of it. Next, we talked about the importance of voting. Finally, the kids got to vote for their favorite picture book (all 3 are class favorites...). I set up my "offices" that I use for testing, available here. They used their ballots to vote. Finally, I tallied up the results! And the winner was...CORDUROY! *A for sure class favorite!
